Duty of candour animation

Video resource

Our duty of candour animation offers guidance on the importance of being open and honest. Being open and honest with patients and those close to them is always the right thing to do and is often referred to as the duty of candour.

We have produced a short animation to help those working in health and social care to better understand the similarities and differences that exist between the professional and statutory duties of candour. The 8-minute animation also offers guidance on how they can be fulfilled effectively.
